All eastbound lanes of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge reopened Sunday following an officer-involved shooting that closed all Oakland-bound lanes of traffic for several hours earlier in the morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP shut down all eastbound lanes of the bridge at 4:07 a.m. and issued a Sig Alert for severe traffic.

The auto, which was not involved in the crash under investigation, ignored repeated warnings to stop as it barreled toward the officers, CHP officer Vu Williams told KRON.

The chaos began with a two-car collision about a mile west of the toll plaza around 3:35 a.m., Williams said.

Mr O'Donoghue said it was "another kind of welling-up moment" for the prime minister. "We wait to see what action will come from it".

"It came up the right shoulder, and they saw it coming at them", Williams said. "An officer felt threatened and opened fire". The red vehicle did have passengers inside, but the gunfire did not strike any of the passengers, CHP officials said.

San Francisco's Bay Bridge was partially shut down after police were forced to shoot a man they say charged his Cadillac at officers on the bridge.

Emergency crews were called to the scene to take the driver to a local hospital.

The condition of the driver is not known at present.
